It's been awhile since I've updated the blog, so it might be hard to believe that a lot of work has gone into Quizlet since the last post. We've made the Quizlet search engine a ton better, we've added some exciting new technology that does voice recognition (more on that later), and made a lot of performance enhancements to keep the site running as growth increases.Now, as we head into summer (and the accompanying dive in traffic as people get of school), we have the opportunity to experiment with lots of cool new features. We're building a lot of cool tools set to be done before the summer is up -- one of which we're ready to announce today:
The Quizlet API is now available! For those who don't know, API stands for Application Programming Interface. The Quizlet API is a tool that lets programmers develop tools that work with Quizlet's massive content library (we now have about 30 million flashcards on our site!) This will let people build cool things like cell phone applications and screensavers that use Quizlet data. Developers have been asking for this for years, so it's great that it's finally available.
The Quizlet API is free to use and only requires you to be a registered Quizlet user (which you can also get for free). This is our first release so you may not be able to do everything you want just yet, but you should find that it's surprisingly powerful. If you have suggestions for stuff we should add or bugs you find, please post a comment in the blog.
